Keep your eyes hydrated and bright. Pay attention to details.

There are usually two reasons for dry eyes: one is because the supply of tears is reduced, and the other is the evaporation of tears.

  The reduction of tears is a characteristic of modern people.

Tears are unavoidable under stress and decrease at night.

Tears also decrease with age.

There are more and more factors that reduce tears such as office automation equipment, the night owl lifestyle, increased social pressure, and dryness caused by the expansion of air conditioners.

  The reason for the increase in evaporation is that the number of blinks is reduced by staring at the screens of personal computers and game consoles; the oil layer on the surface of the tear fluid is damaged for some reason.

The oil layer is secreted from the eyelid sebaceous glands at the edge of the eyelid, but it is often interrupted.

If you use a towel to apply heat to your eyes, blood circulation will be improved, and eye muscle fatigue can be eliminated.

  Adjusting the placement of the computer and the angle of the monitor from the perspective of anti-dry eyes, so that the viewing angle between the eyes and the monitor shows a top-down angle, the evaporation of tears can be reduced, and the dryness of the eyes can be effectively alleviated.

This method of looking down is also effective for the elderly when reading books, newspapers or watching TV.

  Eating bananas to prevent dry eyes The function of bananas to protect the eyes is first related to its rich potassium.

Excessive salt intake by the human body can cause a large amount of water to remain in the cells, causing eye swelling.

The potassium in bananas can help the body excrete these excess salts, allow the body to reach a potassium and sodium balance, and relieve eye discomfort.

  Banana contains a lot of beta carotene.

When the body lacks this substance, the eyes will become painful, dry, dull, and dehydrated. Eating more bananas can replace these symptoms, and even reduce eye fatigue to a certain extent and prevent premature aging.
  Anti-dry eye blinking is equivalent to rest. Normal people blink every five or six seconds, and people who often feel twisted eyes blink to a blink every few seconds or even twenty seconds.

The number of blinks is greatly reduced, the vascular neuromodulation is disordered, and the cornea moisturized by eye drops usually becomes dry and congestive.

  Apply hot eyes to prevent dry eyes. Apply hot eyes or massage around the eyes. Cover your eyes with a hot towel or a handkerchief (with your eyes closed at the same time) once or twice a day for about 10-15 minutes.

You can also use your thumb to lightly press the bones around the eye socket, starting from the upper part of the eye socket, moving towards the eye fundus toward the nose, and then moving towards the eye fundus toward the nose, which can control the expansion of blood vessels and increase blood circulation in the eye.

  Do not face the wind of the air conditioner. The wind from the air conditioner will take away the moisture in the eyes, increase the evaporation of tears, and speed up the interference of the eyes.
